Last night, after tasty sushi at Tenka, I had the pleasure of seeing "Speed Racer" with djinnethGwynne. I loved it... the best live action feel good cartoon ever. Brilliant use of color, and though you might think you'd get motion sickness it's really not that bad. Between this and "Iron Man" last week (which I've seen three times so far) this Summer is already shaping up to be one that kicks much ass. And it's only mid-May!

What else is happening in my world... well, I finally turned in the application to the theatre in San Mateo. Hopefully I'll get a call soon about that. I got myself the Barenaked Ladies children's CD at Target, but I forgot to bring it home with me. I read the lyrics though... should be good. I need to catch up on Lost, BSG, and Smallville... maybe I'll do that tonight if my friend from Eureka doesn't call back.

In other news, from now on my tweets from Twitter will be posted at the very end of each day (11:59 PM to be precise) thanks to something called LoudTwitter. As if my LJ wasn't boring enough, now ya'll can read about what I have for lunch each day! Ooh! Exciting!!

As of yesterday I am the dealer's room liaison for SiliCon 2008. Last year I had filled in at the last minute, but this time I'll be official. So I suppose I should attend the next meeting on 20 April, huh?

Blue Diamond Maui Onion and Garlic Almonds are fucking tasty!

For Easter brunch today djinnethGwynne and I first tried IHOP, then ended up eating at Baker's Square. I'm really glad we decided to switch... Baker's Square was much less crowded and the food was pretty darned good.

Last but not least, here's a song from Barenaked Ladies about Easter:

99% complete... that's an A+ baby!

This is
Jonathan Coulton performing the end credits song Still Alive from the game Portal using Rock Band at the Great American Music Hall the other night. I may have never played either game, but I really like the song.

...and here are the lyrics: )

From an email by Jonathan Coulton:

My apologies if your geographical location makes this email irrelevant, but THIS INFORMATION MUST BE KNOWN: On February 22 I'll be doing a show at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco. I'll be accompanied by a crew of video production people who will capture whatever magic happens there, and later, re-assemble it on a DVD that hopefully the entire world will purchase. With any luck, this will also lead to a proper live CD. I'm telling you all this because it's important that the show be fun and special and generally awesome. If you live in San Francisco, I insist you come to this show. If you don't I hope you'll tell your San Francisco friends about it so they come instead. This will be fun! And expensive and terrifying (for me, not you)! Buy your tickets here: Will there be more shows? Yes, somewhere, sometime. Honestly I can't think past the 22nd right now, and a lot of things are still coming together. When stuff gets booked, I will spam you about it. I promise. See you in SF! -j

The cool thing is, it's the same night Wondercon opens, so I'll be in S.F. anyway. I bought tickets for djinnethGwynne and I (one of the seat numbers is the same for "file not found"... heh) at since the other places online were sold out. I think I'll wear my zombie Spider-Man t-shirt that day (o/` all we wanna do is eat your brains o/`).

I can't wait!

I am home today from work because of some tummy badness. Had to leave the bookstore early yesterday in fact, which I didn't really want to do, but I finally gave in to the inevitable. I suppose not having to deal with the storm today was an added bonus to staying home, and like a good Brand I have been resting. I really need to go in tomorrow because I work at both stores, and besides it's my last day at Sharper Image. I may start working at the Palm store... more to come on that later.

djinnethGwynne has been driving me crazy (though I admit I've been enjoying it) with her obsession with a song from an episode of The Mighty Boosh which features Old Gregg, one of the strangest characters I have ever seen. I have made the song into a ring tone for my new Centro, but it's only applied to Gwynnie. I figured that was apropos.

Speaking of my Centro, I am loving it. I've had a few minor problems with it, but it's working quite well otherwise... I even went ahead and sold my Treo to a coworker. I love being able to text Gwynnie when I want to. What's cool is that while I am lagging on installing the new hard drive I got for Eksmas I can HotSync at the Palm store, which is really nice. And if I do start working there it'll be even more cool to have an extra backup at one of my workplaces.

Almost finished with BtVS season 4... just one more episode to go. I think it's the best season so far, but then they keep getting better and better in my opinion.

Oh yeah... Gwynne also introduced me to the musical stylings of Mika, and I've been listening to his album Life In Cartoon Motion pretty much daily. Good stuff!

Alrighty... that's it for now.

This is the Transformers theme (as originally performed by Lion in the 1986 animated movie) as done by Black Lab. These are the guys who did the song Learn To Crawl on the first "Spider-Man" soundtrack.

What do you all think?


I totally want to see the movie for the third time after watching the video.

The new They Might Be Giants CD, The Else, is out in stores today. I have a copy on hold for me at B&N. Guess what I'll be listening to at work all day today?

The new Harry Potter movie comes out tomorrow. I plan on seeing it tomorrow night after work. Of course I'll be wearing my OotP hat I got for Eksmas a few years ago.

Already pre-ordered the new Harry Potter book... midnight madness here we come!

The day began with djinnethGwynne and I waking up whenever we felt like it, which was after 11 AM. After working nine days in a row that was really good as far as I was concerned. After a bowl of cereal and a very nice shower we finally headed out into the world. Listening to They Might Be Giants, we arrived in downtown San Mateo and had all you can eat sushi. We then walked to the theatre and had our pick of seats for "Knocked Up"... which was fucking awesome. I loved the geeky pop culture references, but even those aside it was just a good, funny movie and i highly recommend seeing it. We drove back to the Nuthouse and I discovered that the Cake CD I had ordered months ago (they finally started sending them out from the distribution center) had finally arrived. The CD, which is their B-sides and rarities compilation, includes covers of War Pigs, Mahna Mahna (yes angry_wolfCarl, that one), and the song which is my current music. It also boasts scratch and sniff packaging... very floral. Anyway, Gwynnie and I have so far enjoyed our first day off together in quite awhile, and the evening promises good dinner and more Arrested Development as soon as Gwynne finishes playing SSX On Tour.

In other news I also finally got my Moo cards a few days ago, will be getting an even better computer than my current one from siestrionMike Amaral in the near future, already have two tickets for the 2 July 2007 / 8 PM showing of "Transformers", and still have one more day off from work tomorrow. Life is teh good!

So last night Gwynne picked me up from work, whereupon we braved downtown S.F. to get to the AMC 14. We got our tickets for the second annual charity screening of "Serenity", had dinner at Mel's, then went back to the theatre to stand in line. I sang along to The Ballad of Serenity and The Man They Call Jayne, as well as a few songs from the OMWF episode of Buffy. Finally they let us into the actual theatre and we were subjected to annoying static for awhile before the movie started. Of course it was as shiny as I knew it was going to be... fill an auditorium with Browncoats and show them anything by Joss Whedon (on his birthday no less) and it's pretty much guaranteed fun will ensue. After the movie was over we walked to Adam's car so I could retrieve my White & Nerdy hoodie (been without it since I saw those two episodes of Drive).

A few nights ago Gwynne and I were lucky enough to attend a free screening of "Ratatouille". When this movie comes out on the 29th I highly recommend taking a child or virtually anyone to go see it. Truly enjoyable.

I've been enjoying episodes of Arrested Development over the last few days. I didn't realize this was one of the funniest T.V. shows ever. Someone could have told me!

Oh yeah... I almost forgot to mention that mc chris has done a cover of "Weird Al" Yankovic's Dare To Be Stupid. It's not quite as good, but still... one of my favorite nerdcore artists doing a cover of my favorite parodist's song which is a style parody of Devo, one of my favorite bands, and add to that the original was used in the animated Transformers movie. Geekgasm!

So now I'm looking forward to "Transformers" on 2 July, a new They Might Be Giants CD (thanks for the link Carl!), then the new Harry Potter movie and book later that month. Today however I have work. Speaking of work and next month, Lee's is having a sale to celebrate our anniversary. Details will be posted soon!

So the Kid Beyond concert was many kinds of awesome. He's really amazing live... recording himself beatboxing, then looping that while he sings. During the song Mothership he looked at djinnethGwynne and I who were singing the lyrics back at him... it was totally a moment. After the show I bought Amplivate, then waited for him to come to the table whereupon he talked to Gwynnie and I while signing the CD. He's a really nice guy... very sincere. We decided to cut out before the next band started as none of us really cared enough to stay. Before the concert, after finally finding a parking space, Gwynne, alotheriaSarah J. , Simon, and myself went to a Nepalese restaurant around the corner from the Independent that I'd be more than happy to visit again. I have to remember that the butter chicken and the lamb are my choices for next time.
